General

  • Well-appointed holiday park in the grounds of a French manor
  • Handy for Calais, Grand Site des Deux-Caps, theme parks and waterparks
  • Two playgrounds, nine-hole miniature golf course and volleyball

If ever you’ve fallen foul of a delayed ferry or Eurotunnel train on your way through to Calais (a highly handy 20-minute drive away), you’ll know that an untimely site arrival can leave you somewhat scuppered.... But not with Château de la Bien-Assise, for its 24-hour barriers and flexible arrival times for booked guests mean that if you rock up even if the middle of the night, you’ll have a pitch to park up at no probs.

And while this place may well be super for a stopover on your way between England and France and wider Europe, it’s also splendidly set up as a family holiday destination, with well-appointed facilities aplenty and a setting among the Caps et Marais d'Opale Natural Regional Park: a land filled with all sorts to see and do, like day trips with wee ones to waterparks, treetop adventure parks and seaside resorts, to active pursuits such as horse riding, walking and cycling in Guînes forest.

Should you arrive on site in time for lunch or supper, a local French dish and a wine quaff at the site’s cosy restaurant is a good shout for starting your stay off here. However, if you’re instead much keener on checking out the facilities at your disposal, you might first want to get settled in and head for a dip in the heated pool with retractable roof: the kids certainly will, as it’s got a waterslide to entice the tiddlers, and you may decide to join too if the idea of a sun-drenched doze on the alongside solarium appeals.

For times of higher energy, a nine-hole miniature golf course and three outdoor ping pong tables (paddles and balls can be bought at the shop) await, or if you’re feeling even more spirited to stir yourself, also on site are tennis courts (extra charges apply) and a volleyball court, or an outdoor gym should you be feeling particularly croissant conscious.

For kids of all years, the park has two playgrounds – one for kids aged eight to 12 and another for smaller people aged three to seven. If instead indoors is where they’d prefer to be, then take you and them for a tipple and mingle with fellow guests over at the bar, where a pool table, a pinball machine and several arcade games are on hand to entertain all family members.

Ample amenities are on site too for extra comfy stays, as lots of showers and toilets – handily furnished with toilet paper and toilet seats to comfortably park one’s behind upon – should ensure the avoidance of morning loo queues.

Please note

The outdoor swimming pool is open between 02/04 and 26/09 (subject to weather conditions).

Commercial vehicles (vehicles used for work related purposes, carrying goods or fare-paying passengers) and sign-written vehicles are not permitted on site.

Facilities/activities including mini golf and tennis courts are subject to extra charges payable on arrival.

Large pitches. Heated swimming pool. Clean toilet block. 23/09/2017

    Large pitches. Heated swimming pool. Clean toilet block.

    Disliked: 

    Snack bar / takeaway food / bar - all closed, but still advertised as available in the price.

    The free wifi 30 minutes at the bar was obviously not an potion as the bar was closed.

    Despite asking about the wifi, we were not offered the free 45 minutes until the second day after another guest had informed us about it and we went to ask for the code.

    De toegewezen plaats en vooral verrast door de staat van het sanitair. Ondanks dat dit redelijkgedateerd leek was het prima in orde. Heerlijke goede douches. Keurig schoongehouden. Handzeep aanwezig en (niet onbelangrijk) toiletpapier

    Disliked: 

    De vele Engelsen die toch wel luidruchtig kunnen zijn

Reviewer's country: Germany Stefan H. Confirmed

    Wir sind erst spät Abends am Campingplatz angekommen. An der Rezeption stand, dass man sich außerhalb der Öffnungszeiten einfach einen Platz suchen solle und am nächsten morgen den Check-In machen. Dies ist extrem praktisch, vor allem da wir schon online gezahlt hatten (Bis auf die Kurtaxe die wir extra bezahlen mussten).

    Noch etwas besser wäre es wenn das gleich auf der Pitchup Seite so beschrieben wäre, dann hätten wir nicht erst bei den 3 Häusen von dem jedes erst nach Rezeption aussieht herumirren müssen.

    Es gab keine geschlossenen Schranken an der Einfahrt, was es erst ermöglicht rund um die Uhr anzukommen.

    Die Einrichtungen waren in gutem und sauberen Zustand. Im Gegesatz zu unseren vorherigen Erfahrungen in Frankreich diesmal sogar komplett mit Klopapier und Klobrillen ausgestattet! Es gibt sehr viele Duschen und Klos, somit sollte es morgens zu keinen Engpässen kommen. Es gab warmes Wasser in den Duschen, frei regelbar.

    Der Campingplatz hat schönes Gras an den Plätzen und viele Bäume für Sonnenschutz.

    Disliked: 

    Über 30 Euro für zwei Personen, Zelt, Auto, Strom sind allerdings nicht gerade günstig.
    Die Duschen sind gewohnt zugig und offen nach draußen, da gab es in England generell mehr Komfort für weniger Geld, teilweise sogar mit Heizung in den Duschräumen.

  • Liked: 

    The pitches where the trees were large and mature were beautiful.

    Pool area good for kids and good play area, with the outdoor gym, table tennis and bowling in one area great for kids.

    Helpful staff

    Disliked: 

    The hours of the snack, bar and shop were very limited. Especially with young children it would be helpful to have some access to something for more hours in the day.

    Wifi was very patchy and dropped continuously.

Directions


Local attractions

That it’s set between the sea and the countryside is the big advantage of this site’s setting: the beach resorts of Wimereux and Wissant are both within half an hour’s drive, plus within half an hour’s pootle you’ll happen across one of Europe’s largest aquariums at the town of Boulogne-sur-Mer.

If you’re one for setting yourself up for smashing vistas, then the Grand Site des Deux-Caps – a most spectacular protected coastal area comprising the Cap Blanc-Nez and Cap Gris-Nez and looking right out towards Dover’s white cliffs – is a speedy short drive away.

When kid-friendly day trips are calling, head to the family theme parks of Bagatelle or Dennlys for waterslide swooshing and miniature railway or monorail rides, or to the coastal waterpark of Aqualud for more than two kilometres of slides, tropical pools and wave machines, all easily within an hour’s drive.
